Packers tied for Big 9 Lead

18 Feb

The Packers raced to an early lead Friday night and led all the way in a 69-56 win over Rochester Century Friday night at home.

Joe Aase led the Pack with 21 points, while  Zach Wessels had 20, Tom Aase 15,  Nate Schwab 6, Bret Lukes 3 and  Goliath Oboyo and Collin Weisert 2 each. See the recaps in the Austin Daily Herald and Austin Post-Bulletin.

Here are the game highlights:

The win, combined with an Owatonna loss to Mankato East, means the Packers are now tied with Owatonna for first place in the Big 9 Conference with three games remaining. If the Packers and Huskies win their next two conference games, the title will be decided in a winner-take-all regular season finale Mar. 2 in Austin.
